The Tax Office is fully operational but has suspended in office interactions. There are outdoor walk up windows at Town Halls North and South daily from 10 am to 2 pm for residents who wish to make their tax payments in person with a check or money order. No cash or credit cards will be accepted. There are also drop boxes that can be used when the windows are not available. You may also send your tax payment through the mail to Jeffrey P. Pravato, Receiver of Taxes, 74 Audrey Avenue, Oyster Bay, NY 11771.
Taxes can be paid online via ACH check (using a checking account, not a credit card) for a reduced fee of 75 cents. Please make sure you select checking account on the payment screen for the 75 cent fee. Credit card payments are also accepted for a much larger processing fee. The Town receives no portion of these fees.
The Office can be reached by phone at 516-624-6400.
Receiver of Taxes Jeffrey P. Pravato
This office handles the billing of property taxes on more than 100,000 parcels of land in the Town and acts as a collection agency for the State (Supreme Court), County, Town, special district and school district taxes based upon budgets adopted by the respective municipal authorities.
In addition to the billing and receiving, the Receiver of Taxes Office has the responsibility of maintaining records and maps of each parcel of land in the Town. To maintain efficiency, the Receiver of Taxes Office has expanded its computer capability. Although most bills are sent to mortgage holding institutions, those residents who receive tax bills directly have noticed that the computer is providing a far greater amount of detailed information about each tax.
In addition, to paying online, Town taxpayers now have the ability to pay their taxes via credit and debit cards (MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Discover) in our Oyster Bay tax office. Please note there is a fee involved. New York State law mandated that the Town of Oyster Bay receives no portion of the service fee – this fee is retained by the payment processing vendors enabling the transaction.
